Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release. Just seven more days as of this posting! Wohoo! This is the first time I reserved a Harry Potter book, as I mentioned 160 days before this post (Wow it’s been that long since I posted that). I reserved my copy at NBS Bestsellers in Galleria (that new, Powerbooks-like National Bookstore subsidiary, top floor of Galleria), and I will pick that up together with my Laking National card and a paperback copy of The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde (I’m sure there’s a copy there).
I feel kind of sad that the entire series is ending by Saturday next week, but that’s the way it is. It’s the same way I felt when I read the last Animorphs book — everything must come to an end. So does this. I bet I’ll shed some tears with this. I may not be a complete Potterhead like the others, but I love this series, and finishing it off feels like saying goodbye to a friend. Sigh.
Oh yeah, I haven’t watched the movie yet. Oops!
Don Moen in Manila. I was looking at House of Praise when I saw the poster of Don Moen’s Manila tour. Yes, he’s coming here (again, I think).

Switchfoot in Manila! After so many delays, Switchfoot is finally coming to Manila! If you’re a Switchfoot fan, you must not miss this! If you’re not, well, you shouldn’t miss this either since it’s a once in a lifetime event! They’ll be here on September 10, 2007, 7:30pm at the Cuneta Astrodome. Ticket prices are Php 1200, 1000, 800, 600, 400 and 250. More info on this in the coming days, but again I say, don’t miss this event! This concert is for the benefit of International Justice Mission. Oh, and one of their band members, Jerome Fontamillas is a Filipino, so this is a definite event to watch. :) I’m selling tickets, so if you’re interested, post a comment here, or email me with the subject, Switchfoot. You may also visit the Switchfoot in Manila blog -> switchfootmanila.blogspot.com.
There are also other events to watch out for, especially in September: Fall Out Boy and Elliott Yamin, I hear? I’m not a fan, but some of you might be, so go clicky. :)
